Jan's letter


We are pleased to inform you that the Rev. Bishop Juan Abellera-Marigza will be celebrating his 50th year of service in the Ordained Ministry. Friends, relatives, and brethren in the Lord shall be joining the UCCP community in a simple celebration that will take place on April 11, 2007, 9:00 A.M. at the United Church of Christ in the Philippines, Baguio City.

The family, in coordination with the church leaders, is currently finalizing the Worship Celebration Program and the Schedule of Activities for the occasion. Among the highlights of the program are testimonials on the bishop’s life, ministry, and services through the years. In this regard, may we be honored to have you share a one-page (maximum, back-to-back) testimonial write-up on the celebrant, perhaps focusing on the impact of his life and services as your pastor and/or co-worker in the Lord’s vineyard, and how God has used him as instrument to build you up in your Christian life as well. Your paper, along with other contributed documentaries, will be compiled in an album to be presented to the bishop in a fitting segment during the Worship Celebration.

Thank you very much for your support and your participation in this undertaking. We would appreciate receiving your write-up on or before April 4, 2007 through Ms. Merlinda Samole, Church Secretary, UCCP-Baguio City.

We also take this opportunity to extend our invitation to you and your family to join us in the celebration. Your presence will surely add more color and meaning to the occasion.

Again, thank you very much.

Sincerely in Christ,
